Last night was Friday Night Scrapbooking and I had 4 ladies as well as myself here and we had a wonderful time :)
I really need to take over the rec-room pool table as we need more room.
I have to research how to (safely) cover a pool table ;)
So last night I worked on another kit I bought at the Crop & Create event I went to last month.
The kits show you what your pages will look like, but you have to cut the papers based on their cutting instructions.
I have to say, I did make an error or two in the cutting department.
I am more of a visual person, not a "follow instructions" type of person , lol.
This kit makes 3 different (one page) layouts.
As you know, I am a two page layout scrapper.
What I did was cut all the papers for each layout and put them each in their own bag.
I have all the left over paper in another bag.
What I am going to do is match up, or use my own card stock for the background and then use the leftover pieces for the second page.
I have been pretty impressed with the extras in these kits :)
Yesterday I forgot to share my Day 22 of 30 Days of Thankfulness.
Yesterday I was thankful for a nice warm/hot candlelit bath.
After working in Ashley's unheated garage all day yesterday and the day before, I was soooo cold, I needed to get my core temperature back to normal ;)
Mind you my nose and toes were still freezing to the touch when I went to bed.
Day 23 of 30 Days of Thankfulness.
Today I am thankful for my favourite beverage.
I have almost quit my pop habit, but I will not say, I will never drink this sweet nectar again ;)
I have quit drinking pop for a year or so in the past, but why deny myself of something I like so much So today I am thankful that I can still drink my pop and then go back to water for the rest of the week, or month..or for however long I want ;)
I have another thing that I am thankful for today.
Becky Higgins has a class going on at Creative Live called Scrapbooking with Project Life.
It was a 3 day free course. It started on Wednesday till Friday and ran for, I think, 7 hours each day.
As I was busy with Ashley I didn't get to see most of it.
But this weekend they are re-airing it.
Even though I don't do Project life ( I do Project 365, with my own supplies). It was very educational and I am sure many will start up with her kits…hey, you never know, I may as well ;)
One of my favourite parts (that I had seen) was the segment with her brother, talking about photo organizing and backup.
I took screen shots and notes as I really need this.
Here is the link if you want to tune in..Becky Higgins.
That is all for me for tonight.
Wayne and I spent the day with Ashley.
Ashley and I are so so close to being finished with her project :) :) :)
Because it was -26C, I told her and her boyfriend to bring the project into her spare room last night, as the wood filler wouldn't dry in this cold.
So today I sanded and then Ashley and I prepped the wood and put one coat of paint on it.
She had to go out tonight, so we weren't able to finish it.
I was going to stay and work on it, until it was finished. But I promised Wayne we could go home during Half time of the foot ball game.
He said we could stay, but we needed to do a bit of errands before heading home and it was after 5:00pm.
Hopefully it will be completed tomorrow and I can finally share it with you :)
I hope you all had a very creative Saturday :)
